president obama as health care law. to keep premiums low, some states are allowing insurers to charge patients a large share of the cost per cent of medications for cancer and other serious conditions. in california, the patients' share would be up to 30% for these " specialty drugs ", which cost thousands of dollars a month. some states like new york are setting flat co-payments for all medications with the highest at $70. critics of the president's plan fear most states will follow california's lead and charge patients a percentage. >> james: the president and the prime minister cameron of the united kingdom are moments away from holding a joint press conference from the white house. it is a schedule for a 15. their meeting today is expected to several issues including the syrian civil war, the made east peace process, and trade between the two countries. as for the issue of syria, both countries are urging russia to increase pressure on syrian leader basha bashar assad. in fact, prime minister can read held talks friday with russian president, vladimir putin to discuss a political
about. not change it, repeal it. obama was -- led the charge here and we were able to pass the affordable care act. the most significant change in health care delivery system since medicare. those many, many years ago. -- it ensures access to quality, affordable health care for every american. republicans would erase these gains and force millions of american families to r rely on expensive emergency room care or go without care at all. fortunately, the republicans' latest exercise in insanity, as described by albert einstein -- that is, their latest repeal effort -- is doomed to fail like the previous 36. mr. mcconnell: mr. president? the presiding officer: the republican leader. mr. mcconnell: it seems like with each passing hour the facts get more and more inconvenient for senior folks over at the i.r.s. yesterday it was reported that the agency may have gone after a ministry founded by billy graham. we also learned that the very same i.r.s. office that admitted to harassing conservative groups also released nine spending applications for tax-exempt status to the liberal
staffer in charge of the tax-exempt organizations at the time the tea party group was targeted is now part of the irs office that handles health care legislation. >>> speaking of that, obama care was under fire again yesterday. the 38th time a vote was taken to try to change the law. 229-195, just two democrats voting with republicans. since being signed into law, the affordable care act remains a divisive issue among americans. just 35% of americans have a favorable opinion of the law. of those who oppose it, 53% believe lawmakers should continue to try to repeal or change it. >>> and while congress has failed to come to terms on legislation in terms of guns and the deficit, immigration reform may not suffer the same fate. the so-called gang of eight's proposal has made it through a third round of senate committee hearings mostly in tact. the committee is considering more than 300 amendments to the bill. meanwhile, in the house, lawmakers reached an agreement in principle on a proposal. the plan is to be more conservative than the senates but will still contain a pathway to citizenship. >
